Independent End-point Assessment

This is where you put all the skills you’ve learned to the test! The new apprenticeship standard includes an independent end-point assessment, also known as the EPA. This means that when you’re ready to complete your apprenticeship, you will take a practical exam that will be supervised by someone from the relevant awarding organisation.

The EPA will provide a snapshot holistic assessment of your practical skills, similar to an industry trade test. You will demonstrate that you can complete a range of services on a number of models to industry standards and within commerical timings. Your consultation skills communication skills, safe working practices, professionalism, values and behaviours will be assessed by practical observation and oral questioning.

This exam is designed to prove to an external examiner that you have all the skills and knowledge needed to be a confident and successful employee.
